Seasonal service from Anchorage, Philadelphia, and Portland begins in May. The lowest fares may not be available in all months and will be at least slightly higher for travel in May and June. Some routes may have very limited travel dates available at the lowest fares.
Tickets at the listed sale prices must be purchased by midnight on January 21, 2020.
Icelandair's Economy Light fares only include a standard-sized carry-on bag plus one personal item. Checked bag fees are $55-$76 each-way when purchased online. If you need to check bags, it's cheaper to buy an Economy Standard fare (+$90-$120 USD roundtrip), which includes one free checked bag.
You may choose your own assignments from standard economy class seats that are still available at no extra charge.
Free Stopover in Iceland
You can book a free stopover in Iceland for up to 3 days on the Economy Light fare. Extra taxes and separate bag fees may apply. If you want to stay longer in Iceland, the Economy Standard fare allows stopovers up to 7 days.
The upgrade to an Economy Standard fare costs an extra $90 for trips to Iceland and $120 for flights to other destinations in Europe. This includes one free checked bag, allows stopovers up to 7 days, and allows ticket changes for a fee. As of December 2019, Economy Light tickets do not allow ticket changes.
Occasionally, you can find a cheaper rate on a third party site, when two separate tickets are booked together or if a forced overnight in Iceland is required.
Other airlines such as SAS, Norwegian, and TAP Air Portugal may offer better prices in some markets, with possible nonstop options on other major carriers. Choose the airline according to your needs. Icelandair may have better routing and allows for free stopovers in Iceland if that is something that interests you.
As an example, I found seats departing Denver DEN on Monday, February 24, returning from Dublin DUB on Friday, March 6, with a 2-night stopover in Reykjavik KEF, arriving back in Denver on Sunday, March 8, for $398 total for the entire trip.
